What is hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a tool for exploring how your unconscious mind can help you access your inner resources, while learning how to deal with obstacles and challenges and finding new ways to resolve inner conflicts. We all have an unconscious mind that is a source of wisdom and creative ideas. Learn how to tap into this unlimited source of possibilities. What will it feel like when I am hypnotized? People often refer to hypnosis as a state where one can concentrate intensely while blocking out distractions. It could be a slightly different experience for everybody, but most people describe the state of hypnosis as the one similar to the moments before we fall asleep and after we wake up. It is a natural state – sometimes called a trance state. That kind of fuzzy, timeless state between dreaming and awake is a trance state. Other people describe it as daydreaming, being absorbed in a movie, driving in a familiar route without being actively able to remember each moment of the drive, or working on a favorite hobby or activity in the “flow” state. These are all “altered states of consciousness,” and all are various levels of trance.

How does hypnosis work? Hypnosis is a state of heightened awareness and focus It allows you to focus inward while feeling a sense of relaxation, in order to create the changes that you want. Hypnosis will help you reconnect with your inner wisdom and access your resources so that you can change the behaviors and beliefs that keep you from living life in your terms. In a computer based analogy, think of your unconscious mind as a super computer where along with the hypnotist your reprogram it and create new positive associations that will help you achieve the goal you haven’t been able to achieve by yourself so far. Will I lose control? One of the important jobs of your unconscious mind, is to protect you and keep you safe. Consequently, when your hypnotist makes a suggestion that is not in alignment with your personal and moral convictions, your unconscious mind will either ignore it or bring you out of hypnosis. You are in control. The hypnotist is there to make sure you are feeling safe and comfortable while she guides you in your inner work and transformation. In The Chrisa Group we support that serious psychiatric or mental health problems have to be referred to a qualified psychotherapist or psychiatrist. Medical problems with the physical body must always be treated by a physician. What can hypnosis help me with?

  • weight loss

  • self-esteem and confidence,

  • motivation and goals achievement,

  • fears (flying, public speaking, heights, success or failure, animals, doctors, dentist, etc.),

  • habit control (stop smoking, stop nail biting, etc.),

  • sports and performance enhancement,

  • test taking,

  • releasing negative emotions (anger, fear, sadness, guilt, etc.), and the list goes on and on…

Since hypnosis accesses the subconscious mind, your behavior can be modified to benefit you by replacing old beliefs or behaviors you no longer need or want with new ones you desire. All behaviors are a learned response. If you learned them, you can unlearn them.
